    One of my hens has hatched 17 chicks. They, the hen included, or in a rabbit hutch. The chicks are now about a week old. How long should I leave the hen in with the chicks?

    The hen can raise her babies , I think they should be getting ab it crowded in there though so is there a way to let them have out side time protected from others?
